We’re Still Searching For Deborah’s Killers, Say Police

Deborah Samuel

The Sokoto State Police Command has said its men are still searching for the suspected killers of a student of the Shehu Shagari College of Education, Deborah Samuel.

 Samuel was stoned to death in May, 2022, by some students believed to be her classmates over allegations of blasphemy.

 The spokesman for the command, DSP Sanusi Abubakar, who spoke with Sunday PUNCH over silence on the case, said those arrested by the police were not the prime suspects. Abubakar said they were only among those who organised the riot.

He added that those arrested were still in remand custody as ordered by the court.
